More than 63% of Australian households own a pet and more than 83% of Australians have had a pet at some time in their lives. If you are planning on getting a new pet, adopt from a shelter, rescue or pound. If you can’t adopt, donate and help APWF ensure all adoptable and treatable dogs and cats in Australia find a forever home.
Animals in shelters and pounds have no voice.
But YOU have the power to save them by supporting the work of the Australian Pet Welfare Foundation. Your tax-deductible gift WILL make a difference! Help us to improve the health and welfare of pets and save lives.
Your donation helps tens of thousands of pets across Australia to live and find a forever home. With the research and data that APWF provides, pounds and shelters will change their practices and reduce the number of animals euthanased.
